Reach for Change is an international non-profit organization with a mission to improve children’s lives through social innovation. We find and develop local early stage social entrepreneurs with solutions that solve pressing issues facing children. The entrepreneurs are helped to scale their innovations through our development programs and through multi sector partnerships, combining the best of the business and social sector. Co-created by a child’s rights activist and leading business entrepreneurs in Sweden in 2010, we now support over 100 social entrepreneurs in 17 countries in Europe, Asia and Africa.
We believe that one person can change the world. What is needed is true passion, entrepreneurial drive and an innovative idea. But this is not enough. In order to change the world you will also need support. You will need someone to believe in your idea and to help you take the first steps.
This is where we come in. We find exceptional social entrepreneurs – people that are passionate about creating a better world for children and who have an innovative idea on how to do it. And then we help them succeed. To go from idea to impact. We call the people that we select our Change Leaders, and we support them through an incubator program.
Reach for Change has been opeatating in Bulgaria since 2014 since when it’s been organisting the contest for social entreprenerus ПРОМЯНАТА (GAME CHANGERS) in partnership with Nova Broadcasting Group.
